Pro metabolic eating is all about nourishing your body with nutrient-dense foods that support a healthy metabolism.

Here are 5 food swaps you can make to support your metabolism:

These swaps are super simple but something that many people have a hard time with at first because of everything we have been taught.

  • Pancake syrup –> Maple syrup

Maple syrup: Maple syrup is made from the sap of maple trees, while pancake syrup is usually made from high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors. Maple syrup has a more complex flavor profile with notes of caramel, vanilla, and even a hint of smokiness, which makes it a more delicious and natural option.

  • Canola oil –> Coconut oil

Coconut oil: Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are a type of fat that the body can easily metabolize for energy. This can help to boost your metabolism and improve your overall energy levels.

  • Margarine –> Butter

Butter: Butter is a natural product made from cream, whereas margarine is a highly processed food made from vegetable oils and a lot more ingredients. Butter also contains more nutrients than margarine, including vitamins A, D, E, and K2. These nutrients are essential for maintaining good health and promoting healthy bone growth.

  • Oat milk –> Raw milk

Raw milk: Raw milk is a rich source of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium, which are essential minerals that play a crucial role in maintaining healthy bones, teeth and muscle function. Additionally, raw milk is a good source of vitamins, such as vitamin A, D, and B12, which are essential for maintaining healthy eyesight, skin, and nervous system. It also contains beneficial enzymes and beneficial bacteria that help to support the immune system and digestive health. These enzymes and bacteria are destroyed during pasteurization, which is why raw milk is considered to be more nutritious than pasteurized milk.

  • Spinach & Kale –> Well cooked root vegetables

Well cooked root vegetables: While raw spinach is a popular leafy green that is known for its high nutrient content and low calorie count, it is also high in oxalic acid, which can interfere with the absorption of certain minerals like calcium and iron. In contrast, well-cooked root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, and beets are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are more easily digested and absorbed by the body.

Why should you care about your metabolism?

Metabolism is the process by which your body converts the food and drink you consume into energy that your body can use to carry out its functions. It is a crucial process that keeps your body functioning properly. These functions include blood sugar levels, hormone production, and the immune system. A healthy metabolism is therefore essential for maintaining overall health and vitality.
